Flashback: The Wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Lt. Philip Mountbatten

Princess Elizabeth married Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten on November 20, 1947, at Westminster Abbey in London.
Princess Elizabeth had enough problems on her wedding day to send any bride into a meltdown. Her bouquet went missing. The pearl necklaces given to her by her parents were already on display at St. James’ Palace, when the bride getting ready at Buckingham Palace wanted to wear them. The tiara broke as she was getting ready. Maybe that old adage about rain on your wedding day signaling a successful marriage is true after all: 65 years later, these two are still going strong.
